Formed in 1999, the Gotan Project's first release "Vuelvo Al Sur / El

group brings the tango into modern day music by incorporating beats & breaks.

"(In) 2010, music blare(d) from the radio that quite comfortably merges
rhythms from Serbia and Colombia, the voice of Oumou Sangaré and the melodic
thump of Maori reggae. But when it comes the new “world music” ie. the merging
of DJ culture with music from the worldwide underground – Gotan Project were the
first to successfully bring the traditional and the folkloric into the
electronic space. The million selling ‘La revancha del tango’ was followed by
their second album the more jazz influenced ‘Lunático’ and Gotan Project toured
the world with their new “world music”.
"I'd always been a fan of Astor Piazzolla who I'd seen performing at Montreux
Jazz Festival aged 14. Ever since then I'd been seduced by the bandoneón as an
instrument and was curious about hearing it outside of its traditional bubble.
Gotan Project not only established a unique and highly influential sound but
they've also preserved the class and elegance of this instrument...
"Broadcasting on the BBC and worldwide for 20 years, there are a handful of
records that have had such a huge impact on my listeners. Alongside the likes of
the Cinematic Orchestra, Zero 7, Jill Scott and Mos Def, the Gotan Project came
out and bit the listener hard. I'll never forget the phenomenal response that
tracks like ‘Tríptico’ and ‘Santa María (Del Buen Ayre)’ from ‘La revancha del
tango’ invoked. Nearly a decade since that landmark release, this record has
everything that I want to hear from Mssrs. Cohen Solal, Makaroff and Müller... "
- Gilles Peterson
"The Paris-based band have reinvented the tango for a post-modern public."
- The Times
"Fusion of world music dance music are almost ubiquitous but Gotan are
exceptional... It's an irresistible mix..." - Evening Standard
